US Paychecks Continue Momentum And Grow Faster Than Expected In The Third Quarter

The Labor Department reported wage growth advanced at a healthy 1.2% pace in the July-through-September period, accelerating from the prior quarter’s 1% rise and contributing to a pickup in overall compensation growth

Are wages driving inflation? An analysis from job site ZipRecruiter showed that consumer prices rose faster than private sector wages from 2020’s first quarter through 2023’s third quarter: consumer prices grew 18.2% versus compensation growth of 16%

“The ECI data suggests that for the most part, wage growth has been slower than inflation, so it’s the tail wagging the dog, not the other way around with inflation that’s pulling up wages, not wages that are driving inflation” Julia Pollak, Chief Economist at ZipRecruiter
